Statement by Public Advocate de Blasio on Governor Cuomo's Bill to Bar Convicted Felons from Receiving Public Pensions

“No official who has broken public’s trust should draw another dime from taxpayers. The State Legislature should demonstrate its commitment to reforming Albany’s culture of corruption by passing Governor Cuomo’s bill into law at once. I applaud the Governor for seizing this moment to send a clear message that the State of New York will no longer tolerate the abuse of public office.”
